Community Blood Center is looking to connect with organizations willing to support our local healthcare system through blood donation.


There are many reasons to host blood drives.

Donating blood together:

  • Increases team morale
  • Adding to your organization’s philanthropic efforts
  • Raises spirits
  • Provides a sense of pride
  • Encourages friendly competition
  • Providing life-saving blood to patients in our local hospitals

Community Blood Center is the primary supplier of blood and blood products in the Greater Kansas City area and must collect nearly 600 units of life-saving blood products each day in order to support hospitals such as University of Kansas Health System, Children’s Mercy, Saint Luke’s Hospitals and many more. Support from businesses, schools and community groups make a direct and meaningful difference to the blood supply and our ability to meet patient needs and hospital demand.

Hosting a blood drive is easy.


  • In person support
    You will have a dedicated Blood Center representative to help schedule appointments and keep track of the lives you save.
  • Online support
    Access to an online portal to facilitate your groups’ donations and appointments.
  • Resources
    Access to posters and collateral needed to help promote to your team.
  • Reporting
    We’ll let you know how many lives your group has saved and provide you with a tally at the end of every calendar year.
